Tim Atkin (TA) : 90 Points (2018)
This Agrelo Chardonnay is made with the Italian Muscat clone and is correspondingly aromatic. Spicy, rich and tropical, it has peach and guava flavours, subtle wood and enough acidity for balance.

James Suckling (JS) : 90 Points (2018)
This offers an array of fresh white pears and peaches with a smooth, juicy and succulent array of melon and more tropical notes. The texture is full and balanced.

Robert Parker (RP) : 89 Points (2017)
They don't want the oak to be the main ingredient in their 2017 Chardonnay, which was produced with grapes from vines planted in 1992 in Agrelo on alluvial soils. It was harvested at two different moments of ripeness and matured in French oak barrels for six months. 2017 was a short crop with good acidity. At the same time, grapes are being harvested earlier, and with their large vineyards, they can select what they use for their wines (they only use 30% of their grapes). This is balsamic, with notes of bay leaf, spices (white pepper) and white fruit. This is a new style of fresher, more fruit-driven Chardonnay with good freshness and, in this case, without malolactic or with just part of it. Tasty, clean and easy to drink. 42,000 bottles produced.

In color, the wine is an attractive, intense red with dark tones.
